Failure Analysis & Design Rectification
Understanding the root cause of equipment failure is vital to making long-term design rectifications and improvements. Lindstrom Engineering utilises Finite Element Analysis and 3rd party material testing to assess complex loading and material shortcomings. Our metallurgy partners provide additional expertise when necessary. Problem-solving and failure analysis methodologies ensure root causes and system shortcomings are addressed.
Understanding the problem and the interaction of all the elements in a system facilitate valuable and timely rectifications. In some cases, seemingly unrelated equipment shortcomings can be contributing to its failure. By utilising CAD simulation technologies within SolidWorks, design suitability is assessed without the need for physical tests or experimentation which saves money and shortens design rectification times.
